But America is exceptional in world history because America was the first nation to be “conceived in liberty.”
America is exceptional because of its Constitution.
America is exceptional because it’s the first country in world history to establish a government, the sole purpose of which is to “secure the blessings of liberty.”
America is exceptional because it was the first nation in human history to put such strict limits on the power of the central government.
America is exceptional because it is the first (and is still the only) nation in human history to be founded on this proposition:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Our rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” are “unalienable” because they are granted by God Himself. And it’s the responsibility of government to protect and secure these rights.
